The Online Community of Saint Joseph’s
Groups can be anything from a service ministry, to a few people who want to meet for breakfast on Thursday mornings in fellowship united by a common interest, to surfers that meet at Privates after 7 am Mass. We are a community and groups are the way we engage as one at a deeper level. In addition to facilitating the management and participation in groups, the goal is to make it easier for you to initiate and start a group of your own.

One of the key goals of CCB is to help make Saint Joseph’s a stronger community. The “Needs” function facilitates that in ways not possible before. Once you create or join your group, this function allows you to coordinate volunteers for all sorts of one-time or recurring functions. Does someone need meals arranged after surgery or a new baby? Trying to organize a community project? The Needs function makes that all possible.
The communication channels are numerous. Parishioner to Parishioner. Leadership/Staff to Parishioner and vice versa. By 1-to-1 or group email, texts, or even voicemails with an inspirational thought from Fr Wayne. All is under your control to chose what method and what content you wish to receive. In addition to accessing the online community with your computer, there is a mobile application as well.
You can access a public calendar of events, just your group calendar (for groups you’re a part of), or your schedule for serving. You can even get text reminders. You can “subscribe” to a calendar, so it appears on your phone or computer along with your personal appointments.
One of the most powerful features of CCB is it’s ability to manage the volunteer opportunities in our many ministries. All of your assignments for service in the ministries you participate in are in one spot. All of those assignments and any Group meetings are available on your personal calendar, and that calendar can be visible on your phone. When you provide your Mobile phone number and Carrier, you can receive convenient text message to remind you of upcoming assignments.
Equally important is how CCB makes it easy for ministry leaders to prepare schedules. By using your preference and block out dates, it becomes a fairly simple process for them. The current manual system is VERY cumbersome and time consuming.
And when schedule changes occur, this process is also facilitated. You can easily request a substitute or even notify a ministry leader of a last minute change which they can instantly see on their phone or at the Church before Mass and thus seek a replacement without having to wait until the last minute.

You will have a complete record of your giving within your profile. Tax time will be easy. Online giving will be expanded to include mobile and text giving, and for any paid events or services you can pay when you register.
